Sea fireflies are a spectacular natural phenomenon that you can see every summer at Sakurai Beach, one of the 100 famous coastlines of Japan, about 1km from Kyukamura Setouchi-Toyo. You can see the glow, when you stir the water. The mysterious white-blue light is definitely worth a glimpse. We offer a ride to the spot with our bus every night during mid-summer for our overnight guests (explanations only in Japanese).

Time frame: mid-July to end of August every day (weather dependent)
Fee: 100 Yen (insurance fee)
